Usher in the spring season with this stunning pink and gold Easter tablescape. If you’re looking for an easy yet glamorous way to celebrate the upcoming holiday, then this table setting will elevate your typical pastel spread into something truly special.
I have to start by saying that creating a pink and gold Easter tablescape was not something I planned.
It was a happy accident.
It all started with these bright pink and white flowers that I happened to walk by at the grocery store.
I’m pretty sure they’re dyed, but the color is just so bright and happy that I had to get them anyway.
And the gold?
I had some gold ribbon lying around (left over from Christmas), and it just seemed to have the right amount of pizzazz to balance out those flowers.
So that’s how my pink and gold Easter tablescape came to be.

Since the flowers were the inspiration for my table setting, I wanted to make them into the centerpiece.
I don’t like really high arrangements in the middle of the table that prevent you from seeing the person setting across from you.
Which meant creating something low.
I decided to go with a 6″ square vase.
Since I only had a few of the daisies, I had to use them sparingly.
So I lined the edge of the vase with white roses.
And that left just enough room for the daisies and pink carnations to go in the middle.
The last step was to wrap the gold ribbon around the vase which helped to hide the stems.
This is one of my favorite ways to change the look of any vase (or flameless candle for that matter).
Since ribbons come in all different colors, you can always make it match your color scheme.
For more details on how to do it, read our tutorial on decorating candles with ribbon. (The same method works for decorating vases).
The place settings
Since I used a gold ribbon on the vase, I decided to incorporate more of the gold in the table setting as well.
That’s when I found these gold magnolia place mats and decided they would be perfect.
Since the flowers and gold are pretty strong elements, I wanted to keep the place settings a little calmer. So I went with white chargers, light pink dinner plates and white salad plates.
Simple gold cutlery works well with the color scheme.
Finally, pink water glasses finish off the place setting.
Bunny folded napkins
While I don’t usually overdo the bunny decorations on my tablescape, I do like to have something that has an Easter vibe.
And in the interest of saving money, I wanted something that wouldn’t requiring any new purchases.
When I saw some napkins folded into bunny shapes in the display at a local store, I knew what I had to do! Take one of them apart so I could see how they made them (don’t tell them that I was the one who messed up their display).
Read our bunny folded napkins tutorial if you want to find out how to make them.
The large pink floral napkin ring was a perfect way to repeat the pink from the flowers.
The finishing touches
To keep the focus on the flowers, the rest of the table decor was pretty simple.
I added two different kinds of candle holders with tea light candles.
The larger ones are made from stemless wineglasses filled with white sand and pink acrylic crystals. And a tealight candle in the middle.
For the smaller ones, I added the pink acrylic crystals to small tea light candle holders to give a little bit of a pink glow.
On the buffet, I divided up the rest of the white and pink daisies that came in the bouquet.
Using 2 or 3 stems in highball glasses is an easy way to have repeating flowers. without spending a lot of money on vases (or lots of flowers).
I was originally planning on wrapping the glasses with gold ribbon to match the centerpiece.
But the pink daisies actually caused the water to turn pink. And I like the way it looks so I left them like that.
The finished pink and gold Easter table
I love the pink and gold color scheme for the table setting.
The pops of pink make the table look very cheerful.
While the gold adds a touch of glam.
And the folded napkin bunnies are just too cute.
Hopefully you have found some inspiration to create your own Easter tablescape.
